A little bit of history

On July 14 2003, an article was publied in Netscape DevEdge site about a RSS News Ticker toolbar. The author of that article, Marcio Galli, explained how to create a simple news ticker toolbar for Mozilla. He also cited an article written by Doron Rosenberg about creating toolbars for Netscape 7.x.

The code that appered on both articles is the base code of urss, so they're the original authors of the project.

urss started because I wanted to learn XUL and I needed a simple RSS Reader.It was my first project in XUL and I had to read tutorials and study the code from other XUL extension. Googlebar was, and still is, the first reference, specially for the installer and the compatibily with Firefox.

The urss project can be contacted through the mailing list or the member list.
